“Finding CrossFit brought me back to my days at Rhode Island; great coaching, motivation, skill work, variety, intensity and community. That friendly competitiveness pushes us all to go further, to work harder, and to never quit. CrossFit and CrossFit New Haven have re-energized and refocused my life. I train CrossFit, I teach CrossFit, I am CrossFit. To me, this is home.”
